Probably the definitive treatment for Lumbar stenosis is going to be surgical, and the tried and true treatment has been what’s called decompressive laminectomy. This involves taking this circle of the spine with the Vertebra nerves running through here, drilling away the back part and doing it either one or multiple levels, depending upon what the imaging shows. In some cases, this may be a simple one hour, two hour outpatient surgery and some situations that may require admission. It may be multiple levels because some patients will have stenosis at four or five levels. Some patients will only have it at one. Some patients may have a slip of malalignment that then requires the instrumentation in the fusion, and so there’s a big broad spectrum surgically.
